.264 is 6.7mm caliber .257 is 6.5mm caliber while .284 is 7.2mm caliber.
Why use the caliber with the worst bullet selection.
btw the 6.5x68 is really a nice cartridge.
Capacity of about 80gr of water afair, no belt, extremely sturdy high quality rws brass that lasts a lifetime when annealed regularly and all the speed you may want.
The standard reamer might be set up for long round nosed bullets, you should check that.
